Deputy killed, officers wounded in Colorado Springs shooting

A deputy is dead and three other officers were injured following a shooting near the Murray Hills Apartments in Colorado Springs on Monday afternoon. A spokesperson for the Colorado Springs Police Department said it's too early to determine if he was killed by Zetina or friendly fire.

Authorities say 34-year-old El Paso County sheriff's Deputy Micah Flick was shot Monday while investigating a stolen auto in Colorado Springs, about 70 miles (110 kilometers) south of Denver. A civilian was injured as well.

The fatal shooting of Deputy Micah Flick is the third member of Colorado law enforcement to be killed in a little over five weeks.

The man's roommate gave the deputies a key to the apartment in Highlands Ranch, about 20 miles south of Denver.

Four deputies were shot. Detective Sgt. Jacob Abendshan, with the department for 16 years, suffered injuries from shrapnel, Elder said, and is listed in good condition.

About 90 minutes later, a police tactical team arrived and exchanged gunfire with Riehl.

We arrive in the last action and we were not able to do that. "I think it's a joke if you are a youth team manager", said Neville. It's one big game of snakes and ladders , and eight of those teams will be rolling the dice this afternoon.

CSPD identified the injured officer as detective Marcus Yanez. Two civilians also were shot as the incident unfolded. The suspect was killed.

Other law enforcement agencies issued their condolences following the shooting.

Elder says all the officers were wearing bulletproof vests and were in plainclothes but wearing badges.

In Douglas County, Deputy Zackari Parrish was responding to a disturbance call when he was shot and killed.

Sheriff Elder said this senseless violence has to end.

Gumm, 31, died of the wound.

Parrish was killed while trying to take a man into custody on a mental health hold.

The five-year veteran of the force, who left behind a wife, had just been recognized for his work.

Monday was Flick's 11th anniversary of serving with the sheriff's office. "We want each officer, every deputy, to know we are grateful for their service". At this time a year ago, CSPD had investigated five homicides.

As a family, we thank the communities of Colorado Springs, El Paso County, the State of Colorado and our entire Nation for the abundance of love that has been poured out. It would be his last call.

A Colorado Springs police officer who was shot is in surgery and in stable condition.

The suspect died, police said, without immediately elaborating.
